|Prieure d'Arche is a vividly fruity and lively Sauternes that is intended for current enjoyment. It is made from 15 year old vines at the Chateau d'Arche estate. The Chateau has one of the finest terroirs in Sauternes, and is classified as a Second Growth. It is located on a hill above the village of Sauternes on gravel and limestone-clay soil which is ideal for ripening.|

The grapes are all hand harvested at a yield level of 20 hectoliters per hectare in three passes through the vineyard. The wine ferments in stainless steel tanks and then ages for six months in 2-year old barrels. It is bottled after one year. Prieure d'Arche combines the richness of great sweet wines with finesse and vivacity and represents outstanding value in Sauternes.
